After those repeated U T I ---9 since April, I am now urinating blood, quite a bit it seems.
And...I called at 7AM, this was frightening to me. He wanted a CT scan today, but it is Wednesday morning because of my insurance :( and the urinalysis shows no infection, just blood. They will culture it anyway, but somehow, with the pain in my lower side, if it is not JUST kidney stones, then the news will be bad.


Thank you for any prayers sent my way, oh--hugs, too :)

    Lizzie, are you on chemo?
    Lizzie, are you on chemo? Some chemo drugs can cause hematuria. This happened to me while I was on cytoxan. I had to take a drug holiday while my bladder healed. I had no symptoms other than the blood and my oncologist called this a "sterile cystitis."

    Here is another link about causes of hematuria:

    I love your links.....
    I only take arimidex, but who knows, maybe that can cause this....that would actually be a relief.

    The arimidex seems to have taken its toll on my body.
    I will read it now, thanks!

    Tomorrow is the CT scan, with contrast. I am worried about the IV like a sissy....and I should be worried more about the DX.

    Thanks for all of your support.
